I find it weird to use Family as the general term for creature categories. Personally, I think Family suits the umbrella category for Species.

Let's say Drachorn family has the ff species: Drachorn (Golemus) species, RustGold Drachorn species, Reindrach species and Wind Dragon species.

To differentiate a family and a species for the pages, we can use Aramor(Family) and Aramor(Species). Make a general format. tankfans 10:11, April 24, 2012 (UTC)

Do you know what ingame its called? i just wrote family down when i was doing it. They group creatures Species As all creatures of similar ilk, aka anniversairy aramors and normal ones are the aramor species? Chewett 16:40, April 24, 2012 (UTC)

We've named them all with the name most specific to them (if it's not the first level) and added family to conceal how many levels each of them actually has. I could write a list with all upgrades of all creatures off hand, but that's exactly what we tried to get rid off :)) Burns (MD) 18:02, April 24, 2012 (UTC)

I think he is refering to the fact that there a family of aramors (anni, imp, normal) and each one is divded into their indivuals (anni family, imp family, normal family). Does anyone have any clue what the game calls the group of crits (aka anni, imp and normal, when inserted into the battle interface, are called?) Chewett 21:41, April 24, 2012 (UTC)

Species, see Ann. 1547 - [2010-07-01 20:01:08 - Stage 10] Burns (MD) 22:14, April 24, 2012 (UTC)

So we can go with that, or with the actual correct term for them; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biological_classification Lists the biological classification for organisms. Pretty picture to the right shows Species at the very bottom, so in MD case, the individual branches; GG Drach and Reindrach are different species for instance. The next "level" up would be Genus and would be accurate for grouping all the Drachorns or Aramors together, though Family would be a more recognisable term. Has been a little while since I studied this so could be wrong on Genus/Family. Grido 23:23, April 27, 2012 (UTC)
